I love the flavors of their boxes, but they’re just not filling for me especially when it’s salad instead of rice. This time around, the lemongrass pork was a bit on the dry side. I’m glad that I got the fried shallots though – they tasted good.

Wow, this was actually really hot! I was surprised because most lunch places, especially in the Union Square area, play it safe with the heat. The pork had a lemongrass flavor, but it wasn’t juicy as it could have been. I love hot and spicy, but I think they may have overdone it with this one. You really couldn’t taste much of anything else.
